The integration of epitaxial BaTiO3 films on silicon, combining c-orientation, surface flatness, and high ferroelectric polarization is of main interest towards its use in memory devices. This combination of properties has been only achieved so far by using yttria-stabilized zirconia buffer layers. Here, the all-perovskite BaTiO3/LaNiO3/SrTiO3 heterostructure is grown monolithically on Si(001). The BaTiO3 films are epitaxial and c-oriented and present low surface roughness and high remnant ferroelectric polarization around 6 μC/cm2. This result paves the way towards the fabrication of lead-free BaTiO3 ferroelectric memories on silicon platforms.
